Further Information

Leamington Spa has been blessed by Been Restaurant, which offers classic and contemporary Chinese dining in a space that is itself classic and contemporary. Proprietors Stanley and Kate have lovingly converted an old public house down Leamington Spa’s Chandos Street into a chic Chinese dining room, with stylish furniture carefully selected and imported from China to complement the modern Chinese cuisine on offer. It’s all detailed leather furniture and black glass, and the food is just as seductive. Been also caters to parties of up to 20 people looking for private dining.

Been Restaurant’s lunch menu, served from noon until 2:30pm, gets started with their popular dim sum. Specialties like the crispy aromatic duck, beef in black bean sauce, or king prawn omelette are all available at incredibly affordable prices. There’s the odd pan-Asian dish to be found here, too. Been’s dinner menu is even more interesting. The range of courses is magnificent, with starters like the Capital spare ribs worthy of an authentic Beijing restaurant. Middle courses and soups make way for a huge selection of vegetarian, beef, chicken, pork, and seafood dishes, not to mention the rice and noodles selection. The best bet is to go for the all-you-can-eat option. Leamington Spa’s Been Restaurant can be found along Chandos Street – have you been to Been yet?

The food was very tasty, and while all the usual favourites were there, they were prepared in a more upmarket fashion that takeaway. The dark-wood and red decor was again traditional but not tacky. The waiter service was efficient and polite. The prices were highly pleasing. Will definitely go there again!

Great food and customer service. It's in a great location and easy to park. I have now eaten there twice and both times it's been amazing food and service. I have also had takeout and it is to the same standards ​as if you are eating in. If you love Chinese food, you would love it here and great valve for money.

Very varied and extensive menu, so much to choose from on the buffet menu. Good food, service good. Gave to pkenty of time between courses. Atmosphere would have been better probably if more customers!!! Thought drinks were a tad expensive though. Would pay a return visit.

Good food, but service was less good unfortunately. We were left waiting about an hour for our second course. The restaurant wasn't full to capacity but this delay meant we were in there for 3 hours! A real shame, and very different to the last time I was there.

Delicious food. Bit slow on service, and probably could have used bigger portions to share as we kept needing to order more, but there's no problem with ordering more, so we certainly didn't go hungry!

The quality of the food is very good, with very polite and helpful staff, in a nice environment. Value for money is also very good on the buffet menu.

We found the Resturant ideally placed in Leamington right next to a car park. Food was excellent and the staff very attentive. We are definitely booking to go again.

excellent food and service, do not ask for one of each starter, you will not need any further courses! Recommended for small or large (up to 20 people) parties

Lovely food, very slow service considering restaurant was nt very busy. Service was a lot better when a particular waitress started shift towards the end of our sitting. Very rude waiter discussing the tip we gave to decent waitress in front of us.

Really good food and plenty to eat. Food came quickly and is reasonably priced. Unfortunately we were the only ones in the restaurant which is unusual so not much atmosphere.
